Educational Multimedia Research Centre
  EMMRC Kolkata began its journey as a modest Audio Visual Research Centre (AVRC) in August 1986 following UGC’s approval of a budgetary support. The basic objective of this endeavour was to complement the efforts of teachers through technology-driven media and reach high-quality educational input to students in resource-poor areas through Countrywide Classroom (CWCR) telecast over Doordarshan National Network. In 1991, AVRC was upgraded to Educational Media Research Centre (EMRC), with more posts, most equipment, and above all more responsibility. In 2004, EMRC was rechristened as Educational Multimedia Research Centre (EMMRC) in order for it to diversify its activities taking advantage of the emerging digital technologies. It is the only media centre hosted by an undergraduate college, unlike sixteen other centres that are hosted by universities or central institutes of higher education.

EMMRCs core activity is the production of educational television programmes, some syllabus-oriented instructional ones and others in documentary format for enrichment of young minds. The programmes cover a large number of subjects from the disciplines of science, technology, humanities, commerce, and bio-science. Recently it is concentrating on producing video-lectures, keeping the use of intricate television language to the minimum and concentrating on the teacher and the message. In 23 years of its existence, EMMRC Kolkata has produced more than 1500 educational programmes in English and around 500 in Bengali. This centre has won 80 awards for its efforts over the years.

College History
A quarter of a century before the present St Xavier’s College began in 1860 in the discarded San Souci Theatre on Park St, by the Belgian Jesuits, an international group of Jesuits commissioned by the English Jesuit Province landed in Calcutta to look after the interests of the Catholics. The team was headed by Dr Robert St Leger.
  • 1834 : Opening of the College of St Francis Xavier at Moorghyhatta by Fr Chadwick, an English Jesuit.
  • 1835 : the institution is shifted to no.3 Park St.
  • 1841 : It is shifted to 22 Chowringhee, where the present day Indian Museum stands, to accommodate the increasing number of students, the same year Mgr Carew lands in Calcutta to take charge of the affairs of the Catholic Church.
  • 1846 : The closure of the College of St. Francis Xavier due to the feud between the Jesuits and Mgr Carew, and the Jesuits leave for their home shores.

Other names to be remembered: Joseph Mero (an Italian lay brother), Fr William Weld, Fr Moore and Fr Robert Johnson. At the demise of Mgr Carew in 1855, Mgr Olliffe took charge as the new bishop. An admirer of the Jesuits, and with the active support of lay people prominent among them being the Corneliuses, the O’Briens and the Cantophers, the Belgian Jesuits were appealed to come to Calcutta to look after the education of the Catholic community! No. 10, the burnt out premises of Sans Souci theatre, was bought by Mgr Carew in 1850 to transfer St John’s college he had begun in Entally.. St John’s was transferred to No.10 but the experiment did not last.

In 1859 the Jesuits landed on the shores of the Charnock city, and made no. 10 Pk St their home, handed over to them by Mgr Olliffe. On 16th January 1860, the college St. Francis Xavier incarnates as St Xavier’s College at 10 Park St. The leader and founder was Fr Depelchin. The college was granted affiliation by Calcutta University in 1862. The present 30 Park St where St Xavier’s College is situated is an amalgamation of numbers 10 and 11 of Park St. No.10, where stood the remnants of Sans Souci, was bought by Mgr Carew with money received as a donation from Lackersteins, an investment company connected to East India Company. It was handed over to the Jesuits to start St Xavier’s College by the then bishop of Calcutta, Mgr Olliffe. The rich Anglo-Indians donated generously to the efforts of the Jesuits.

And with a donation from the home Province of Belgium, premises no.11 was bought for Rs 45,000.00 in 1864, by Fr Depelchen, the founder father of St. Xavier’s. For expansion work in terms of class rooms and to accommodate the Jesuits fathers, there was a paucity of funds. The Rector’s appeal to the public of Calcutta in newspapers for generous assistance was responded with magnanimity by well wishers of the city in 1864. Besides Fr Depelchin and his assistant and Br. Koppes the builder went around personally collecting funds, literally knocking at doors like a beggar. The old gives way to the new. The present imposing 5 storied building was built in an interval of 6 years, from 1934 to 1940 at a cost of Rs 9 lakhs, which was collected partly from the public of Calcutta, assistance from Belgium, and the huge rental received from the American army that occupied the building during the second war.
